Nicky and Kieran's impromptu engagement party shares the spotlight with the first performance of Golgotha, Wayne's band. But it turns out to be the shortest gig in history, when Louise's son, Brett, decides to destroy his bass guitar. Both William and Louise are well aware of his problems - schizophrenia, complicated by depression. At the announcement of Nicky's engagement, Alistair is beside himself, because he never thought she'd do it. In drunken misery, he kisses Michelle and tries to look up Liz, who is not at all sympathetic.
